Webb India Private Ltd. has developed a team of individuals who can take projects from rough undefined concepts to successfully running systems. When unusual applications warrant drawing from even deeper experience, Webb India Private Ltd. routinely collaborates with its joint venture parents - Jervis B. Webb Company - with its 77 year heritage for innovation and design excellence and - Vinar Systems Ltd. - with its 27 year background of manufacturing and installing equipment in the Indian industrial environment.
Webb India Private Ltd. applications engineers work with customers at the initial concepts stages of a project. These engineers analyze initial data and system ideas in order to help a customer arrive at a well defined plan for a material handling project. They prepare written project proposals and initial concept drawings. They work with Webb India Private Ltd. sales engineers to prepare cost estimates for the potential projects.
When a proposal is accepted by a customer and converted into a project, a Project Manager is assigned as the single individual to lead Webb India Private Ltd. team in completing the project. The Project Manager is responsible for formulating a detailed project execution plan and orchestrating the coordination of all entities involved in the project in order to ensure a successful completion.
